Fold the bottom edge of the bloomers up one fourth inch, then again. Press. Stitch. Repeat for the top edge.

Take one piece and fold it in half right sides together and stitch down the length of it starting at the bottom and stopping at the place where it curves (see pattern). Leave the top and bottom open. Repeat with the other piece.

Turn one piece right side out and one piece inside out. Put the right side out piece inside the inside out piece (understand?) and sew that curve.

Turn right side out.

Put them on the doll and take a needle and some embroidery floss. Don’t knot the end. Thread it through the eye and let about two or three inches be coming out of one side and the rest on the other. The thread needs to belong enough the go around the doll at least twice. Starting on the outside, put the needle through to the inside and back to the front. Don’t go through the doll. Don’t pull the thread all the way through. Leave a couple of inches hanging out. Go all the way around the top of the bloomers.

Take the needle off and hold the threads ends while you push the fabric to gather it. Tie the thread in a bow. You might want to double tie it or you be always tying it when baby gets it. Repeat for the bottom of the legs. About one inch up from the bottom. That’s all there is to it, we’ll do the dress next. Please comment if you need help :D have fun!
